Thanks to its full-screen design, the OnePlus 5T’s front was shocking at first glance, with very narrow forehead and chin, and a very neat, black panel with no extra elements except for the camera and the handset. In addition, OnePlus 5T uses a virtual button design, fingerprint recognition keys are also placed on the back of the fuselage. If you are accustomed to, the latter is also very easy to unlock the fingerprint, and OnePlus 5T also supports rapid face recognition to unlock, to meet the needs of different scenarios unlock.

Came to the back of the phone, OnePlus 5T Continuation of the OnePlus 5 aluminum integrated body design, in addition to more than a circular post-fingerprints, the overall visual difference. Metal matte material cold and delicate, with carefully polished “plus a characteristic curve”, not only feel very comfortable, but also particularly make people feel safe. After all, nowadays many glass back cover of the machine is too impatient dropped.

Of course, its rear camera raised, may make people slightly dissatisfied, but fortunately OnePlus has always been the legend of the phone shell, both stylish and well-protected body and lens.

Nothing to say in the box, the scene mode switch button acclaimed, in addition to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack is still very commendable.

As an important node in the evolution to a full screen, the OnePlus 5T is relatively restrained by its name, but its internal and external forms have become synonymous with “replacement.” The front is a 6.01-inch 18: 9 screen, still the Optic AMOLED material, resolution 2160 × 1080.

In the core hardware configuration, OnePlus has always been “Never Settle” The processor follows the flagship Snapdragon 835 platform, with up to 8GB LPDDR4X + 128GB UFS2.1. Front 16MP camera, rear 16MP + 20MP camera.

Compared to OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T upgrade is mainly reflected in the appearance, rear camera. Just equivalent to 5.5 inches phone measurements, OnePlus 5T has a 6.01-inch full screen view, and retain the “one plus characteristic curve”, “horizon design.”

Although the rear dual camera unchanged pixel, but has been replaced by the “wide-angle + telephoto” combination of “wide-angle + wide angle” are 16MP high resolution lens (IMX398), 20MP high sensitivity lens (IMX376K), the aperture is f /1.7.

Performance

In terms of performance, the Oneplus 5T remains the same. The Snapdragon 835 is still the fastest mobile processor, delivering future-proof performance on the Oneplus paired with 6 or even 8GB LPDDRX4 RAM. The octa-core processor works with two clusters. In a power cluster, 4 Kryo 280 cores with a maximum of 2.45 GHz are used. The power-saving cluster has 4 slower-clocked Kryo 280 cores at 1.9 GHz. Thanks to the production in 10nm process, the processor works powerful and energy-efficient at the same time. All apps and games can be used easily and in terms of multitasking there is no restriction even with the “small” version. The internal memory measures 64 or 128GB, depending on the version and can not be extended. It is, as befits a flagship, fast-fire UFS 2.1 dual-lane memory that can handle the speed of modern SSDs. The speed is surprisingly high at 475MB/s in reading and 220 MB / s in writing. Also the main memory reaches peak values ​​with 7GB/s.

The Oneplus 5T is thus excellently positioned in terms of performance. The speed is not higher than the Oneplus 5, but it does not have to be. There is simply no smartphone that is currently faster than a Oneplus 5T.

Camera

The OnePlus 5T features a dual-f/1.7 aperture in a 16MP (high-resolution) + 20MP (high-sensitivity) dual camera. The two sensors are IMX398 (16MP, 1.12μm), IMX376K (20MP, 1.0μm) respectively.

Different from the existing double-camera program, the two cameras do not have the main and auxiliary points, but intelligently switch according to the ambient light.

16 million high-resolution camera-based camera during the day, under the light to 20 million high-sensitivity camera-based. When the illuminance is lower than 10 Lux, the four pixels will be intelligently aggregated into one 2.0 μm large pixel, which can reduce the noise in low light environment and improve the definition.

System

The system has not changed much. The Oneplus 5T will ship with OxygenOS on Android 7.1.1 . An update for Android 8 has already been announced by the manufacturer. For the Oneplus 5 is already a beta of Android Oreo ready and the 5T will receive its update at the beginning of next year. The system now has a huge fan base. The reason for this is simple: unlike the heavily modified systems of almost all manufacturers, OxygenOS maintains the clean look of Android and extends the system only with some additional settings. The result is especially visible at the extremely high system speed.

Connectivity

In terms of connectivity, fortunately, not much has changed. As far as the use of mobile internet is concerned, the OnePlus 5T also represents a completely happy package. In addition to all the LTE frequencies required in GermanyIt also supports a variety of other LTE tapes, so you are also very well positioned when traveling. Thankfully, there are no more country-specific versions and even on the Chinese-marketable version, all LTE tapes are available. If you want to give up German-language service and delivery in favor of the price, you can do so with the OnePlus 5T without hesitation. The network reception of the smartphone is strong and it can run two nano SIM cards simultaneously in the phone. However, there is no way to expand the memory. The call quality on the phone is upscale and has a full sound on both sides.

Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac with support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz is available for wireless connection . The Wifi data throughput of the predecessor was a disappointment and we hoped before the test that the Oneplus 5T will perform better here. Fortunately, this is the case and the data throughput is at about 15 meters away from the router again significantly higher than its predecessor. The Oneplus 5T also scores points with the latest Bluetooth 5.0 support, Other sensors include a Hall sensor, acceleration sensor, proximity sensor, NFC and a gyroscope. VR glasses can therefore be easily used with the OnePlus 5T, although you get a better VR experience with a 2K display like the Samsung S8. Positioning is done by GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou and pedestrian navigation is supported by an e-compass.

Battery

The 5.5 inch smartphone Oneplus 5 had a 3300mAh battery installed. The larger Oneplus 5T gets the same battery capacity despite the 6-inch display. Before the test, we therefore assumed that the term is significantly worse than its predecessor. This is fortunately not the case and with the Oneplus 5T you still get a real cross-country skier. Oneplus has made an effort here and trimmed the software even more on energy efficiency. In the stress test, the Oneplus 5T loses only about 6 percent battery when viewing a Full HD video with half the brightness. When gaming intense games about 10% of the battery will be lost in one hour (also half brightness). As a normal user, you can expect a runtime of just over two days, and even for hardcore users, the device will bring enough energy for one day of running time. Excellent!

The OnePlus is charged with the in-house DASH batch method via the USB Type C connection . This already showed a breathtaking speed in the predecessor and works just as well on the new 5T. After half an hour, the smartphone has already charged 60% of the battery. After 70 minutes you have 95% and to fully recharge 1: 20h needed. These are all peak values ​​that ensure that short-term charging already provides enough energy for a longer period of time.

Summary

The manufacturer has definitely taken a step forward with the Oneplus 5T. In terms of design, the Oneplus 5T can convince. The large 6-inch AMOLED display with small edges detracts impression and gives the mobile phone an extraordinary appearance. Although the Oneplus 5T does not quite match the WOW effect of Xiaomi Mix 2, but you still get absolute premium class. The fact that the fingerprint sensor has moved in favor of the large display on the back, many users may have been unsettled. However, the excellent face-unlock method easily compensates for this flaw. The performance of the Snapdragon 835 processor is still world-class, and together with the slim Oxygen OS system leaves nothing to be desired. It is also remarkable, despite the large display, a very good battery life could be achieved. As far as the camera of the Oneplus 5T is concerned, you still get a very good set-up. Daylight shots are excellent and the portrait function also leaves an impression. The improvement of the low-light shots by the second camera does not always work, but sometimes creates really nice night shots.
